Legends hail football project
The newly launched 70s/80s Legends in Limpopo has an important role to play in football development in the province.
This was the view of former professional payers during the launch of the project in Seshego last Saturday.
Junior Ramusi, the provincial project's manager and publicist, said they will ensure that they succeed in their mission to develop football in the province
"We are happy to have officially launched this project in Limpopo and everyone is confident that a number of youngsters will benefit a great deal from it," said Trott Moloto, the project's national coordinator.
"I'm encouraging ex-professional players to adopt schools where they will hold coaching clinics on a regular basis. The project should be broader because we should also target prisons as part of our rehabilitation programme."
The former Bafana Bafana mentor from Seshego also urged the provincial government to contribute towards the sustainability and success of the project.
Former Orlando Pirates super sub Andries Sebola, said he was excited that the project was launched in Limpopo.
"It's all systems go and I'm looking forward to contributing towards the development of soccer in my province," Sebola said.
Other former professional players who hailed the initiative included Gerald Raphahlela and Jacky Ledwaba.
Peter "Fuduwa" Mathekga, former Seshego Naughty Boys golden striker, said: "We are not focusing on Limpopo but throughout the country."
